A 54% dark chocolate from Germany.

Sarotti No. 1 Mexico Dark Chocolate Chilli

There was a time, not so very long ago, when the combination of dark chocolate and chilli was relatively new and exciting. Not any more though...

Niederegger Marzipan Desserts Selection

Another little souvenir of a trip to Europe, where marzipan seems to be much more popular than it is here in the UK.

My Chocri

Chocri is a German company that lets you create custom chocolate bars. Choose from a white, milk or dark chocolate base, then add up to five toppings from a selection of over 100. Chocri’s web site claims that makes over …

Meybona Organic Coconut Chocolate

Unfortunately there was a bit of an incident involving the outer wrapper of this Meybona mini bar which means I couldn’t photograph it. Luckily the rest of the bar was just fine, as you can see. Meybona isn’t terribly well …

Ritter Sport Selection Part 2

Taking a look at the first half of Ritter Sport bars I received, my views were favorable. The second half, however, I am not finding so enjoyable. Three of these bars contain nuts; two are dark chocolate. Working on the milk …

Ritter Sport Selection

The wonderful thing about getting sent samples to review is that you end up with things you might not otherwise have tried. Despite positive reviews on Chocablog, I never had much interest in Ritter Sport. The name doesn’t appeal to …

Vivani Organic White Vanilla

Time for another bar from Vivani, and this time it’s a very simple organic white chocolate with flecks of vanilla. This is very different from the last white chocolate I reviewed. The disturbingly sweet Milky Bar Raisin & Biscuit seemed to …

Vivani Feine Bitter Cassis

One of the things I like most about this job is when a company whose products you’ve written about sees what you’ve written and decides to send you a big box of chocolate. It’s not just the free chocolate (no, …

Gut Springenheide Real Eggshell

In the aisles of holiday goods, this Easter egg caught my eye — hazelnut truffle in a real eggshell? That’s a new one for me. It was three or four dollars, but looked very pretty, so I had to try …

Porta Waldfrucht

Every so often when chocolate shopping, I go nuts. I just get caught up in the moment and pick up all kinds of bars that I wouldn’t normally try but for some reason I convince myself that it would be …

Hachez Cocoa D’Arriba Raspberry-Balsamico

Apparently German company Hachez are making a bid for world domination. That can be the only explanation for their rather imaginative bars showing up all over the place because even my little corner of Canada has an impressive range of …

Hachez Cocoa D’Arriba 77% Mango & Chilli

I think it’s fair to say that over the past few years the Chocablog team have discovered just how varied chocolate makers’ products are, and between us we’ve sampled some quite unusual tasting chocolate. Of course, chilli and chocolate is …

Vivani Praliné

I’m having one of those days. Trying to write software that runs on different versions of Windows – and I’ve hit a stumbling block in Vista. As it seems, one does. The Chinese curse applies doubly so to Windows Vista: …

Café König Spanish Pine Nut Bar

One thing I will say about Berlin’s Schönefeld Airport is that the shops have a pretty good selection of chocolate to choose from, and my eye was drawn to a couple of bars made by König. Why Spanish Pine …

Vivani Crisper and Espresso Biscotti Bars

Vivani is an Italian-sounding brand name for a German chocolate manufacturer and I found two bars lurking in my local corner store and was keen to try them. Their very informative website has as an English-language film clip that states that …

Bahlsen Choco Leibniz

Another little treasure from Premier Food and Beverages is this packet of German biscuits that Rainer tells me “Are like Germany’s version of Tim Tams – they’ve very popular.” Now I’ve already tried and enjoyed the Waffeletten from Bahlsen before, but …

Kinkartz Domino Star

A while back I reported on a journey to our central food market, where I picked up a range of goodies. This is another from that haul. At the time, I had no idea what I was buying. It looked …

Hachez Cocoa d’Arriba Blackberry & Cocoa Nibs, Strawberry & Pepper

Note: You can read Simon’s review of the Strawberry & Pepper block here. Lovely, kind, talented and generous chocablog reader Hannah read my tepid review on Hachez’s sea salt and tomato block a while ago and said that she’d found some …

Momami Creation

Another treasure from Rainer and Oliver of Premier Food and Beverages is the pan-poured Momami Creation ‘Frisch geschopfte confiserie chocolade.’ My understanding is that it is milk chocolate with cranberries. Rainer reckons that hand-poured chocolate might take a while before …

Rausch Plantagen Selection (Part 2)

Note: You can read Deanna’s take on Rausch’s El Cuador and Puerto Cabello bars here. Having already tasted, enjoyed and reviewed the first four lighter blocks of the Rausch Plantagen variety (cocoa solids ranging from 35% Noumean to 47% Costa …

Rausch Plantagenwelt Selection

Rausch (www.rausch-schokolade.com) is a German chocolatier that Rainer and Oliver from Premier Food and Beverages are bringing out to Australia. Rausch is a family-owned, third-generation company that has been making chocolate since 1918. In more recent years they’ve …

Bahlsen Waffeletten

Rainer from Premier Food and Beverages urged me to try a packet of the German biscuits Waffeletten. Based in Hanover, Bahlsen have been making biscuits since 1891 and export them to over 80 countries around the world. Bahlsen make …

Rausch Puerto Cabello and El Cuador

These two very thin 40 gram bars are German (despite the Spanish plantation names), with each being divided into six pieces. I found them in a handy sale, but seem to have made a mistake in not buying more. I’ll …

Hachez Cocoa D’Arriba Cherry Tomato Salt

Our sophisticated traveller and chocablogger Simon can take a break from his weirdo cedar sap and absinthe chocolates and fancy-shmancy trips to Qatar and Milan and instead stay home and scoff some Creme Eggs because I have finally found something …

Holex Dark Chocolate

When I tried the Healtheries Atomic Cherry Bar, I said I loved my local Foodland. Here is another reason why. I was wandering around and found “Holex Dark Chocolate”. Now apart from falling into one, I wouldn’t know a Holex …

Lindt Excellence 99% Noir Absolu

I went through the chocolate stash, and put a challenge to the family today: “Here’s your choice, now what will we pick to taste today?” Oldest son has been nagging for months to try the Lindt 99% that we found …

Lindt Hot Papaya

Thanks to my mates Ashleigh and Marie – also new chocablog contributors – for bringing this little 150g treasure back to me after their overseas odyssey, the wonderful Lindt Hot Papaya. It is another of those tantalizing examples of what Lindt …

Lindt Williams

No, that’s not the name of my Fantasy Boyfriend. Being barely able to master my mother tongue – English – I’ll come out and confess to you that I have no idea what Aus Fruchtigen Williams-Christ-Birnen actually means (“From …

Lindt Edelbitter Mousse Fig & Caramel

On our recent trip to Europe (oh, how I like the sound of that, as if we do this sort of thing every few months, darlinks, rather than every 20 years) we scoured the supermarket shelves looking for a wee …

Hachez Bits ‘n Fits Espresso

The English language is a wonderful thing, especially when manipulated by non-native speakers (witness the hilarious engrish.com if you need to know more). Whilst in Germany some time ago (these have been languishing in a compartment of my fridge for …

Niederegger Marzipan Classic

I’m not sure if marzipan chocolate is a German “thing”, but this is the second German bar I’ve had a bar with marzipan in it. The first was the Ritter Sport Marzipan which I reviewed back in November. On the surface, …

Leysieffer White Chocolate with Cinnamon

This is the second Leysieffer bar I have sampled, and it couldn’t be more of a contrast to the previous (Dark chocolate and Elderflower) bar I tried a while back. Many thanks to my little helper who selected these two …

Lindt Calvados

Further proof of two things: Lindt are constantly adding to their range of flavours European consumers have access to a much wider (and consequently more interesting) range of flavours than we are here in the UK. One cannot help but wonder if Lindt …

Leysieffer Holunder-Blüten

Late last year one of my small chocolate-loving people had a school trip to Germany, and so I handed over €20 and said “Bring me back something unusual, and make sure it’s chocolate.” Well, sure enough my faith was rewarded, …

Hachez Cocoa D’Arriba Strawberry & Pepper

It’s been a little while since I reviewed anything truly unusual (unless you count the remarkably different Conscious range) and I was beginning to wonder whether I’d find anything ‘odd’ when I was given – amongst other things – this …

Ritter Sport Marzipan

Plain chocolate with a marzipan filling.

Ritter Sport White Whole Hazelnuts

White chocolate with hazelnut.

Ritter Sport Rum Raisins Hazelnuts

Milk chocolate with rum, raisins and hazelnuts

Ritter Sport Praliné

As you may already know, I’m a huge fan of Ritter Sport. They make simple, great quality chocolate in decent sized bars. It’s unpretentious and delicious. This particular bar is interesting because it’s quite similar to the Guylian Sea Shells I …

Ritter Sport Chocolate Crème

If you’re a regular Chocablog reader, you may know I’m a big fan of Ritter Sport. The Cappuccino, Peppermint and Dark varieties were all delicious. So my reaction on finding this new addition to the range was mixture of excitement and …

Ritter Sport Dark

50% 'Half Bitter' dark chocolate.

Ritter Sport Peppermint

Dark chocolate with a peppermint filling.

Ritter Sport Cappuccino

Sometimes it’s nice to have a change from the usual. You spend ten minutes browsing the vast array of chocolate in the local sweet shop, but nothing really grabs you. And then you see it. Something new. Doesn’t look British. Or American. …

Tchibo San Vicente

Tchibo San Vincente 42% cocoa solids milk chocolate.
